Right, I'm not talking about the live config (though that is of course
backed up too).  The sources are backed up via Git backups, and the
mirroring the built config packages as part of the main repos is
somewhat moot because they are already in the backups of `/srv`.

Note that their are secrets checked in to etckeeper, so if it gets
pushed to a remote repo, then that remote repo must be private.

Happy hacking,
